Tutoring Services: Types of Tutoring: Online Tutoring

Our purpose is to help you succeed academically. You choose which way is best for you!

What is Online Tutoring?

Students who cannot come to a campus for tutoring in person are encouraged to try tutoring via the Internet, using either NetTutor or OWL (the Online Writing Lab).

In addition, we have a virtual version of Walk-In Tutoring called Online Drop-In Tutoring. Students can join our tutors in Blackboard Collaborate rooms for tutoring in many of the subjects in which we tutor, without having to worry about where to meet in person. Visit any scheduled online tutor without leaving your own campus — or your home!

Students, search our Tutoring Schedules to find online tutoring times that work for you.

NetTutor

NetTutor logoWe offer an online tutoring service called NetTutor that operates even when we are closed.

Students, you can use NetTutor on a 24/7/365 basis for math and many other popular subjects. This means you can get tutoring in most subjects during and after regular campus hours!

You can access NetTutor through the myMATC portal (Students menu) or, in some cases, through your Blackboard classes.

Instructors, we have provided detailed instructions for adding a NetTutor button to your Blackboard class.

Note: We encourage students to find MATC tutors before using NetTutor. We also discourage students from relying solely upon NetTutor for assistance, as NetTutor is only free for the first 12 hours of use. MATC tutoring is always free.

We do still offer in-person tutoring in most subjects on all four campuses. Search our Tutoring Schedules to find out when and where.
